My 2000 Toyota Camry's hood lift struts have to replace. I bought two new ones without end fittings. I am supposed to reuse the old end fittings. However, they are ball studs inserted into ball sockets without retaining clips or things like that. I don't know how to remove the old hood lift struts without cutting off the ball studs. Any suggestions on what to do and what tools to use will be greatly appreciated.

Return the hood struts and get the ones with the ends.

Open the clip on the end at the ball and pry up.
